Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic. For many it is the Next Big Thing in Business. Others, such as business pioneer Elon Musk are warning about the dangers. Deutsche Telekom is one of the first companies that has responded to this challenge and defined guidelines for dealing with artificial intelligence (AI). These guidelines are self-binding guidelines with an emphasis on our business and business models. They define how we want to deal with AI, and how we will develop our AI-based products and services.
Our customers of the Telekom Data Intelligence Hub are the first to benefit. Particularly, for a service offering that is explicitly focused on benefits from Data Analytics the guidelines are of utmost importance and mandatory for the development of our product offerings.
Artificial intelligence must support our actions. AI should support people and expand their abilities instead of restricting them.
Of course, we do not claim that our guidelines are a silver bullet, but we do want to develop our policy further through continuing discussions that will help us achieve a broad consensus.
We look forward to broad feedback and a good discussion. Please find our detailed guidelines HERE.
